2 a) Read some facts about Australian citizenship. Which of them

Immigration to Australia is estimated to have begun around 51,000 years ago when the ancestors of Australian Aborigines arrived on the continent. Europeans first landed in the 17th and 18th centuries, but colonisation only started in 1788.
Before 1949 Australians were British subjects only, and Australia shared a common nationality code with the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth countries at the time.
Aborigines were not counted in the Australian population until after a 1967 referendum.
Since 1949 when the first citizenship ceremony took place over four million people from 200 Countries have become Australian citizens.
